My name is Sam, and I make video essays and documentaries about the collectible card game Magic: the Gathering. I have been working on Rhystic Studies since 2013.

In 2021, I completed my Ph.D. in Italian Studies with a doctoral thesis on Italo Calvino. I apply the research and writing skills that I developed in graduate school to every video project.


I am passionate about games – how they are made, the stories they tell, and the ways in which they bring us together.

Thanks for watching my videos.
